The deadline for applications is Friday 29th September 2023.
The Foundation’s funding priority for this year is Equality and Diversity.
Funding is only available for UK charities with an average income of less than £400,000 a year. As they aren’t a large funder, they provide highly specialised grants up to £2500 and can’t fund every charity that applies to them – much as they would like to.
In awarding grants, the Foundation applies the following principles:
o Applications from any geographical area within the UK are eligible for consideration.
o All applications from previous recipients of grants or from previously unsuccessful applicants will be considered by the Trustees on their own merits.
o Although the Trustees will have regard to the outcome of the previous application, any new application will in no way receive preferential or adverse consideration.
o The Foundation will not normally support applications from large charities i.e. those with an annual income in excess of £1 million or charities dedicated to issues deemed by the Trustees to be already well funded within the UK.
o The Charity will willingly fund partnerships with other organisations to fund initiatives beyond the financial scope of a single organisation.
o Be a UK registered charity.
o Be a small charity (income less than £1 million).
o Have a clear, defined goal for their digital presence (fundraising, campaigning, providing information etc.)
o Be able to commit to supporting the project with staff or volunteer time and resources.
o Agree to include Funded by the Fat Beehive Foundation on any work funded, in part or full, by the Fat Beehive Foundation for three years from time project is publicly launched.
o Agree to commence work on the project within three months of being awarded a grant.
The grant should not be used to solely cover core digital costs such as hosting and support, staff digital training or digital staff salaries.
